The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

The former NCN7 route at Pointhouse Road and the footbridge with steps over the Clydeside Expressway still form useful parts of the cycle network to differing degrees.

Freshly painted Advance Stop Lines at Anderston Cross, but none at the second stop lines under the motorway bridge.

I find it strange that, of all the bus stops around the city of Glasgow, the two sites chosen for the green-roof bus shelters are both at locations that are no longer served by bus services due to the adjacent Fastlink busway. See also #174 ... [more]

A green-roofed bus shelter replacing another shelter at a bus stop that is no longer used by any bus services due to the Fastlink busway. See also #174947.

The Stobcross Bridge is to be shut during the COP26 conference for some sort of security reason.

The end of Port Street has cycle route signage, but no dropped kerb to access the path seemlessly.

The path next to the Clydeside Expressway at Skypark.

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway.

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway, with the right-hand verge encroaching onto the path.

Low overhanging tree branches all along this section of path next to the Clydeside Expressway, restricting visibility and the ability to use the full width of the path.

Junction on NCN7 for Partick to the left and City Centre to the right. I'm not so sure about Kelvingrove Park being to the left, since that way is just along the main road. Head right and leave NCN7 at Ferry Road for the West City Way route ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of that bar attached to the underside of the bridge is, but there's a bit missing now. I'm sure the edge of the NCN7 cycle path next to the Clydeside Expressway was straight when it was installed, but is now ... [more]

There used to be a sign advising any cyclists on the westbound Clydeside Expressway that they needed to leave at this junction in order to access the Clyde Tunnel (due to the ban on cycling through the main Clyde Tunnel carriageways). Howev ... [more]

If a gap wasn't possible opposite James Watt Street (see #173269), a cycle slip lane onto the central reservation island would be useful to enable a right turn onto the toucan crossing across the opposite carriageway to be made, and then he ... [more]

The lack of a connection from James Watt Street to the riverside NCN75 path and the Tradeston Bridge (visible background left) continues to make this a difficult place to cycle. A gap through the kerb and railing on the far side of the junc ... [more]

A cycle route is signed through the narrow underpass between Dumbarton Road and the ground to the rear of Lennox Avenue. Pedestrians walking to Victoria Park would be well advised to ignore the signs and walk in the direction not signed ... [more]

No provision for cycling through the closure of Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive. A dropped kerb and toucan crossings at the junction signals would probably suffice.

The sign permitting cycling in the Fastlink busway has gone, and there is a sign directing cyclists to the shared path along the riverside. However, the crudely altered "Bus and cycle only" road markings remain.

A split toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and the main Broomielaw carriageway, connecting the riverside path and Brown Street.

A toucan crossing across the Clydeside Expressway sliproad, but not across Finnieston Street. Nothing to say any footway is legal for cycling. The toucan crossing is one of a chain of toucan crossings leading to the path to Minerva Street.

This is meant to be a protected cycle lane, but there is no protection on this section, just paint!

There's not much left of the protected cycle lane on Broomielaw, under Central Station bridge.

Traffic island and bollard to help prevent left hooks on the Clyde Street pop-up cycle lane.

Demand for cycling in both directions on Clyde Street.

Thank you @GlasgowCC ! https://t.co/N49JEwGMQ3 [Rectifies problem in #117842]

Cycling legally on the Fastlink busway at last! (But only in this direction.)

Caught out by the road markings, or a change of mind when the traffic signals changed? The sign reads "Cyclists use Fastlink Carriageway", and a tiny "& cycle symbol" added amidst the "Bus Only" wording.

I guess the road markings are to remind bus drivers turning onto the Fastlink busway to look out for cyclists, but they appear to suggest to cyclists to go straight on, when the yellow sign says to use the busway.

The popup cycle lane recommences in Broomielaw, after George V Bridge, while NCN75 U-turns down a ramp onto the riverside path. The footway along this section ahead is no longer shared-use, but still sees people cycling along it, even with ... [more]

The popup cycle lane continues onto Broomielaw, passing under the Central Station bridge.

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street.

The Clyde Street popup cycle lane, and a closed layby.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, after Victoria Bridge.

A traffic lane removed on Clyde Street and turned into a popup cycle lane.

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, to provide extra capacity for NCN75 on the shared footway.

The plastic ramp hasn't stayed in place, but the sandbags are better than nothing for bumping down the kerb. An asphalt ramp added on top of the road surface would be better. [Sorted in update at #144431]

Start of temporary cycle lane on Clyde Street. People joining from either the carriageway through the cones, or from the ramp from the shared footway.

Cycling on the forbidden Fastlink Busway, next to Broomielaw. Not many cycle paths in Glasgow are this easy to cycle on. The Clyde Walkway NCN75 (to the left) has lots of obstacles on it, as well as being popular with pedestrians. See also ... [more]

Cycling on the A814 Broomielaw, next to an empty Fastlink busway. See also #87028.

A 2-stage toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and Broomielaw to get to Brown St.

No crossing to get to the riverside or NCN75 from James Watt St, and way blocked by a continuous railing. See also #173269. At the same time, Glasgow City Council is progressing with plans to implement a contraflow cycle facility in Blyt ... [more]

A 3-stage toucan crossing across the Fastlink busway and Broomielaw to get to York St, with added caging.

No dropped kerb to join the cycle track if coming from the underpass. Location: Victoria Park, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

A section of the path alongside the Clydeside Expressway has been resurfaced, replacing old broken paving slabs with asphalt.
